Wire Recorders
« on: January 06, 2018, 12:21:37 AM »
John Cohen recorded Gary Davis on a Wire recorder in the early 50's  an un-audiophile technology that yeilded pretty crappy sonic results, but offered small size and relative ease of use. Is anybody aware of any other Blues recordings made this way? Just curious.
